At least two lawsuits have been filed in California, two in Minnesota and one in Oregon, CBS News said, citing multiple reports.

More than one is seeing class action status, and at least one is seeking compensation in the millions of dollars.

The attorneys general of four separate states seeking more information about the coordinated attack is only the first step in what may become a multi-state investigation, according to USA Today.

Target’s sales have suffered in the aftermath of the attack, which occurred between November 27 and December 15.

Transactions are down as much as four per cent, according to an analyst who spoke with the Wall Street Journal. Figures at other retailers remained strong.
